Track Name: Tarriffville Town
I heard the sound of your piano
and I went back in time
a long road of different faces
and people passing by

here on the home front it's been a clusterfuck
I hear you're doing fine
I'd have written to you sooner
I haven't had the time

it's been a long time since I last saw you
I don't remember where
i still feel your own silence
i still feel the same

we got a lot of love

why don't you meet me at the meeting spot
I have been alone
a lot of things I want to say to you
I have been alone

we got a lot of love

I heard the sound of your piano
I went back in time
a long road of different faces
people passing by

now we're living here on the home front
these are different times
I'd have written to you sooner
I haven't had the time

I haven't had the time.
Track Name: Together
Tennessee came to me
out of breath from trying
the more I look the more I see
this way of life is dying
everyone in the marketplace
never stop from drying out
so roll another number now
get tired of that crying sound

soon enough came knocking at our door
and it was early
another century closed its eyes
the collection plate was empty
a southern man in a long black coat
sighed and breathed the deepest sigh
you've ever heard
and belted one last verse and passed away for good

goodnight to all you came to be
it's good to know when you've had enough
the daylight brightly would say it's time
go home
you can't stay here
be careful driving around out there
it's later now than when we first came

dakota dust has settled down
so far from new york city
roll another suitcase in
my love you look so pretty
even if your hair turns gray
you can't see beyond the open door we're standing in
don't let this worldliness become our friend
no

goodnight to all you came to be
it's good to know when you've had enough
the daylight brightly would say it's time
go home
you can't stay here
be careful driving around out there
it's later now than when you first came
Track Name: Dakota Dust
Was it the hum of the late night guitars calling alone
was it the hazy glow of the tail lights that followed you home
was it the weight of the years settled down in your bones
that made you finally decide to surrender

your heart was hard and cold and withered like a shed made of tin
sometimes the light that shines from outside would come sneaking in
you tried so hard to buy what cannot be sold
now you can't believe your own eyes anymore

if you ever run into people who know me
maybe you'll mention my name and they'd show you
some kind of amazing love for someone
that falls like the stars and burns like the sun

and it's colder than hell in the winter up here in the north
herkimer county new york where my family was born
most folks stay for something or someone
you made it rich with a life on the run

if you ever run into people who know me
maybe you'll mention my name and they'd show you
some kind of amazing love for someone
that falls like the stars and burns like the sun.
